March 22 (Bloomberg) -- France needs a junior minister in charge of financial reform, Jean-Pierre Jouyet, president of France’s financial markets regulator, said in an interview published today on the website of Acteurs Publics.
Jouyet, head of the Autorite des Marches Financiers, said the proposal by Pascal Canfin, a member of the European Parliament, is “a very good idea that answers a real need for coordination” and could allow France a stronger voice in negotiations with other countries, according to Acteurs Publics, a monthly magazine.
Such a post would be under the Finance Minister, whose agenda is too full to allow adequate focus on the issue, Jouyet told Acteurs Publics.
